Rendezvous Box | 12 Utah Staycations harm Sat, 01/26/2019 - 20:00
If you've been following along our on social media, then you'll know we partnered up with Rendezvous Box for part of our Salt Lake City Couples Staycation! Not only did Rendezvous Box plan an amazing dinner, they also planned an AMAZING activity we hadn't done before. We filled out the online survey that helps Rendezvous Box tailor our date to us and then we got to choose how much we wanted to spend. There are three different price packages, so something for everyone. When we arrived at the AC Hotel there was a red WAX sealed envelope waiting for us

Snowshoeing Mill D North Fork Big Cottonwood Canyon

Rhiannon Here! Although we hiked loads in 2017, 2018 was not nearly as exciting- we had too many of our routines thrown out of whack. So with school out during Winter Break I thought I’d try to make up for lost time and I took my kids up Big Cottonwood Canyon to snow shoe a trail that we have frequently done without the snow, Mill D North. It’s across the road from Donut Falls (see our guest post here.) Round Trip would be anywhere from 4 miles to about 8 miles, it depends on where you are going- Dog Lake

Airborne Trampoline Park | Lindon

There are few things my kids love more then what they like to call "jump places." Their idea of heaven is any place where they can run and jump and play and Airborne in Lindon (they also have a location in Draper) is as good as it gets. My kids, ages 5 and 2 were wide eyed and ready to go from the second we walked. We quickly filled out their waivers, removed our shoes and we were ready to play. Airborne is a huge facility with lots of wall to wall trampolines, trampoline dodgeball and basketball areas, platform jumping

Giveaway | Brian Head Ski Lift Tickets

We've teamed up with Road Trippin with Bob to giveaway 4 ski lift tickets to Brian Head. Brian Head is one of the few ski resorts in Southern Utah, like one of two. We're not even sure if the other one is still open. Either way, Southern Utah is not really known for snow right? Brian Head Resort opened in the winter of 1964-1965. Ten years later, the Town of Brian Head was established. The Resort grew from a one chair lift operation to a complete Resort offering skiing, snowboarding, tubing, night skiing, dining, mountain biking and hiking. Sounds amazing

Loveland Living Planet Aquarium for Halloween

We used to have an annual pass to the aquarium and LOVED going there quite regularly... the kids never got bored and between their 3-D theater, play area, shark tank, hands on exhibits, etc. we would spend the entire day there at least once a month. Since our pass expired we haven't been back in awhile and heard that there was a new Asia area that has opened up this year and were thrilled when the aquarium agreed to host us for a day. We got there right as they opened at 10 am sharp... along with what felt like

Utah Children's Theatre | Magic Show | Salt Lake City

Utah Children’s theater was kind enough to host us for their Magic Show. I’m a big fan of places that allow my kids to experience new things. Theater is always a hard one for kids to experience because, let’s be honest, kids are can be disruptive. Utah Children’s theater is such a great solution. I love how they allowed and encouraged the kids to react to the performance. And they even have treats! Treats and drinks are $2 each. Andrew Nadon, the mentalist who performs the show, was great at keeping the kids entertained and laughing. The stage setup is

Spiral Jetty | Great Salt Lake

Think of one place in Utah where people come from all over the world to visit. Zion National Park? Temple Square? Arches National Park? If you guessed any of these glorious places, you'd be right, but you may be surprised to know that the Spiral Jetty fits this description, too. (See our post on Created in 1970 by renowned artist/sculptor Robert Smithson, the Spiral Jetty forms a massive coil of black basalt rocks jutting from the northeastern shore of the Great Salt Lake. People from all over the world (especially those who know a bit about the art world)

Utah Children's Theatre | Snow White

My niece recently turned 9 and when I asked her what she wanted for her birthday she told me she wanted to see a play. So I looked into local productions and just happened to find that the Utah Children's Theatre was running Snow White, which happens to be one of her favorite stories. I was so excited to find out that they had enough tickets left to host all the girls in our family for a fun girl's night out with the aunts, cousins, and of course, Grandma. It was such a fun show, they ran one of the
UMFA Free Family Third Saturday harm Fri, 11/06/2015 - 11:53
Give your kids a little dose of culture and take them to the Utah Museum of Fine Arts (UMFA) for their Free Third Saturday event! The UMFA is a real, legit art museum. It’s very quiet and the art shouldn’t be touched. My kids had never been in this sort of environment before. At first I was little nervous. Surely they were going to break something. But we talked about museum etiquette before entering and they did a great job practicing it throughout. It was a new way to teach our kids about manners and respect. And I really loved
